  • Minecraft: Cair Denbar Updates

    Things have been busy in Minecraft since I last posted.  I’ve been tooling around with random updates, upgrades, and additions to my main castle, Cair Denbar.

    It started out after Christmas just looking around for little things to work on, and I just ended up going from one project to the next in quick succession.  Here’s a list of the projects I can remember from the madness:

    • Removed silly security doors throughout the complex
    • Updated all directional signage (intersections, stairwells)
    • Built a new addition for the Royal Academy and re-configured its old space back into First Hall
    • Moved the Halls of Healing to West End, and re-purposed old space as the Music Hall once again
    • Updated Throne Room interior using walls to give more depth & detail
    • Updated wall along Second Hall to be thinner using walls
    • Raised the ceiling in Royal Library (been putting this one off for ages, involved moving fireworks & redstone)
    • Added new West Stairs & Balcony to replace cramped West Tower Stairwell
    • Updated The Grotto (hadn’t been touched since it was built 8 years ago, added a large stained-glass window)
    • Converted Royal Pools to East Spring (was bad location for pools)
    • Moved the Royal Dungeon to West End
    • Replaced old dungeon with Royal Baths

    After that laundry list of minor projects, I got carried away updating the exterior of the whole place. I added some minor tweaks to the Great Hall and liked it so much, I went a little crazy.

    Overall, I think the exterior looks ALOT better now!!!

  • New Village Progress

    I’ve started working on a new village along the insanely long road I built recently. I’m currently calling it “Bunkerville”, but I’m not sure that will be its final name.

    It is going to be a small village along the road from Southron to Draksp’ir, on the edge of the Badlands.

  • Road Building Progress

    I’ve started building a very long road in Minecraft.

    It connects my city of Southron to Perry’s city of Draksp’ir Nord, and traverses a good third of the continent. It will be the longest road we’ve constructed yet.

  • Minecraft: Citadel Point

    I finished my new military base!  I even took a stab at building my own ships, and it came out really good!  Yes, I may have used some examples I found online to inspire it/them.

    The fortress is now complete, and even has multiple ships and airships.

  • For my next trick…

    Now that I have finally finished tearing down the old forts that were the headquarters for my sky-force and navy, I need to go about replacing them with a new facility.

    I’m still really not sure what I’m going to build, but I want it to be a military stronghold of some fashion.  It will be the headquarters of my navy, as well my as “sky-force”.  My world has airships, so of course the military would have some as well.

    I want to have some docks and some boats, and obviously need some sort of aerial facility to dock the skyships at.

    I’ve picked a location, shown on the map below and pictured above.  Its decently located near some of the larger cities in my Empire.  There won’t be any kind of road-access, so one will need to travel there by boat.

    Thoughts? Suggestions?

  • Minecraft: Builders Block

    My grand tour of updating things was actually a distraction for my next project: Removing an old fort in Imperial City.

    I tore the fort down last night, but now I’m right back where I started with no idea what to put here instead.

    Anyone got any thoughts?  So far all I can come up with is some more houses (but there isn’t a lot of room for them), or some sort of new Palace.
